A (TOTALLY) MADE-IN-ITALY SWIMMING POOL

The Italian companies of the swimming pool sector are pursuing a careful and constant research and development process aimed at continuously improving their productions, because even complex systems like swimming pools can be 100% made in Italy.

« The Coronavirus pandemic we have been experiencing for two years has reshaped the image we had of our private spaces, spreading the need to revisit the concept of gardens by introducing a pool »

The war in Ukraine and the subsequent energetic, eco nomic, social, and humanitarian crisis – along with a still undefeated Covid pandemic – created a very complex sit uation for Europe. Still, there are good news for the Pool and Spa Industry: the market keeps growing and the new outdoor concept, indirectly supported by this delicate in ternational scenario, is propelling the aquatic industry to ward a whole new era.

On the eve of a particularly difficult winter for Europe and, in general, for the whole international community, it’s al most unbelievable the unstoppable growth of the Pool and Spa Industry. Nearly all the economical and financial areas are affected by what’s happening in Ukraine and by Rus sia’s response to the sanctions inflicted against Moscow's economy by the Council of the European Union and still, the Pool market has been experiencing significant growth since 2020 – the year when the Pandemic spread – and it’s poised to keep growing from 2022 to 2026 by $4.60 billions, accelerating at a CAGR of 2.67%, and, according to The Globe Newswire, is projected to reach USD 4171.10 million by 2028. As claimed by Technavio, which published a report about the Swimming Pool Market, large-scale ur banization is one of the main factors boosting the glob al swimming pool industry. The developed building mar kets in nations like the US, UK, Spain, and Germany have been forced to concentrate on improving the quality of the current residential infrastructures due to the rapid popu lation expansion. As cities become increasingly crowded, there will be a greater need for residential infrastructure, which will fuel the growth of the pool market through out the forecast period. Also, one of the major pool mar ket trends that are expected to have a positive effect on the sector throughout the projected period is tourism in crease. The industry is expanding because of the low-cost airlines, the abundance of hotels that provide lodging at various price points, and the high purchasing power of the populace. The dynamic packages, which provide an inclu sive price for a specific package ordered by the buyer on a whim, are now being offered by online retailers. Hotels have begun adding swimming pools to boost their visual attractiveness to draw clients. Also, on a more local level, the Coronavirus pandemic we have been experiencing for two years has reshaped the image we had of our private spaces, spreading the need to revisit the concept of gar dens (terraces, roofs, and interiors) by introducing a pool.

Furthermore, government bonuses – and the roller-coast ing prices of gas – spurred a major use of energy and wa ter efficiency measures, contributing to adding a touch of green to a whole industry.

TECHNOLOGY + STYLE = GLAMOUR

When we talk about Italy, we also talk about good taste, class, and elegance. We are country of travelers, poets, and writers, but also of stylists and architects renowned all over the world. Therefore, it is obvious that the tastes expressed by consumers and the market trends observed in recent years require a certain level of manufacturing. A function al design, often integrated with hi-tech elements, but able to preserve an image of beauty linked to the natural and not too artificial, able to fit harmoniously into any context, be it urban or countryside, in particular, this is what the Ital

ian public is looking for today. The pool must be beauti ful, comfortable, well-equipped, and eco-friendly. Today, a greater attention is paid to technologies (and best prac tices) that help to preserve resources and reduce con sumption, without however renouncing the pleasure of a dip in the water. If we consider exclusively the looks, the pools are mostly characterized by polygonal shapes, with the rectangle that dominates undisputed. Ever the diva of the scene, the pool is often accompained with wide stair ways, soft beaches, elegant steps, design elements, and everything that might enhance its shape or maximise its ‘power’, like hydromassage areas, refined seats, and fur nishing elements. The suggestive infinity edges, the PVC and stone coverings, the underwater LED spotlights, and the modestly sized solarium areas are also among the most loved and indispensable elements.

ENVIRONMENT FRIENDLY? OF COURSE!

Awareness of the importance of safeguarding the envi ronment and, consequently, the future of the Planet, has reached public opinion in a karst way. By eroding precon ceptions and prejudices, disinterest and disinformation a little at a time, until recently a new awareness has matured regarding the need to do more and quickly, to contain the already disastrous effects of pollution, climate change, and global warming. As citizens, companies, and owners of ho tels or wellness centers, we can do our part and quite eas ily. Just take some precautions, and make sure that our impact on the Planet we inhabit starts to tend more and more towards zero. In Italy Piscine Oggi magazine and Fo

rumPiscine – the International Pool and Spa Expo & Con gress – presented the Self-sufficient Pool, an eco-friend ly, zero-impact swimming pool. The representation of how technology, automation, sustainability, and self-sufficiency can – and must – coexist together in the aquatic system, a model that's not only a construction methodology but a sum of technical devices and good practices united under an avant-garde concept that’s extremely necessary, in an era when fresh and clean water is becoming an increasing ly rare commodity.

OUTDOOR, THE NEW FRONTIER IN POOL DESIGN

The concept of "pool environment" has a multitude of meanings. If we consider this area from an architectural

point of view we need to evaluate what is needed, in terms of works, to furnish a house, from the colour of the walls to the sofas for the living room. In the cinema, on the other hand, it corresponds to the scenography, the outline of a specific moment, and a script of a story. On closer inspec tion, however, there is no dissonance between one mean ing and another, and between one definition and another. The setting is – in every sense – the outline. And the outline is essential to convey an effect, a feeling, or an emotion. A scene, at the cinema, doesn’t end with the actors and if we translate on the pool, it’s clear that beyond the water, the fi nal scenography is determined by all the elements that – so to speak – get caught in the framing of the camera.

« A new event dedicated to the outdoor experience, OUTEX, will take place in synergy with ForumPiscine – the Italian Pool and Spa Expo and Congress – in Bologna, on February 2023, from 15 to 17»

OUTEX, THE OUTDOOR EXPERIENCE EXHIBITION

As we said, at the heart of it all, there is the pool. Water is of course the true protagonist of our story. However, this doesn’t mean that the pool environment is exhausted with this element, quite the contrary. The garden, the terrace, the balcony: what unites these spaces is the idea behind a project, a scenography made up of a multitude of fac tors. And this macro-category that includes the outdoors at 360 ° – from decks to gazebos, to pergolas, so to speak – represents today a new sector that is in a full swing. In a word, Outex. A new event dedicated to the outdoor expe rience, that will take place at the same time and in synergy with ForumPiscine – the one Italian Pool and Spa Expo and Congress – to display the most innovative, eco-friendly, el egant, modern and hi-tech products that the market has to offer. In the next pages, we will talk in detail about this ex hibition, which will take place, along with ForumPiscine, in Bologna, from 15th to 17th February 2023. Let’s just say that it will explore a new fundamental segment of the market, one destined to grow exponentially in the coming years.

LIGHT, A TRUE DIVA ON STAGE

If “all the world's a stage”, as the Bard, William Shakespeare, said, then light is the queen of the scenography. Multifac eted, multiform, sparkling, and pure as the very essence of beauty, light is one of the most inspiring and exciting ar chitectural forms and it can be shaped, set, or artificial, but sooner or later it will change, transforming the ephemer al geography of a space. Therefore, carefully designing the light points it could bring a truly unique imprint to a pool environment and the market, for this reason, offers endless possibilities, from colored lanterns, able to create an imag

inative and captivating atmosphere, to soft golden lights, more romantic, up to luminous sculptures, as in a small per sonal art gallery. Light has acquired the status of architec tural element and technologies connected to illumination are very popular. Expecially when they ‘join forces’ with wa ter: the swimming pool, in itself, is already an evocative el ement, but we can move it with waterfalls, gargoyles, and geysers, with the bonus of being able to enjoy the mag nificent sound of the pouring water. Guess what happens when a water fountain, for example, is illuminated in a sug gestive way!

FORUMPISCINE 2023 WILL HOLD A WORLD CONFERENCE DEDICATED TO WATER

Let's start with culture. The first great news of ForumPis cine 2023 is that this event has been chosen (for the first time ever during a trade fair) to host the 10th International Conference on Swimming Pool & Spa (ICSPS), the prestig ious global conference dedicated to the bathing and ther mal water of swimming pools and spas, promoted by the Istituto Superiore di Sanità and the Foro Italico University of Rome.

OUTEX, THE OUTDOOR & LEISURE EXPERIENCE

As insiders well know, the organisers of a new exhibition are eager to amaze, capture attention, engage and – why not? – excite participants. ForumPiscine, for the 2023 edition, went even further, as it focused on a veritable revolution and created OUTEX, the Outdoor & Leisure Experience, an event exclusively dedicated to outdoor experiences. OUT EX will be a totally new event at the Bologna exhibition cen tre, which will be held within the framework of ForumPis cine to offer visitors – from swimming pool managers to the owners of recreational facilities, including private own ers, families, and anybody who is planning to build a swim ming pool in their garden – an immersive and all-encom passing journey to help find their preferred style for their swimming pools. The exhibition will therefore include an architectural corner, a taste and culture experience that will present the public with the most interesting, environ mentally friendly, innovative and hi-tech solutions the mar ket has to offer in terms of outdoor wellness. OUTEX is a wide-ranging event designed to highlight excellent design options for outdoor spaces, with solutions for leisure ac tivities and wellness. It will be a B2B (Business-to-Business) event, where buyers may be either a private individual or a company, as well as a facility manager or a Public Adminis tration. The exhibition project will address the interests of a wide and varied audience of potential visitors: industry professionals (such as designers, agronomists, landscape designers, architects, urban planners); private companies that manage facilities; buyers of sports centres, fitness and wellness clubs; swimming pools, wellness centres and spas; hotel resorts, farm houses, camping sites, tourist villag

es, water parks; garden centres, home designers; private owners of one or more houses with a garden, the Public Administration. OUTEX visitors will have the opportuni ty to get in touch with the latest news concerning the fur nishing and fitting of outdoor spaces, the design and re generation of green spaces, the construction of parks and gardens, the maintenance and sustainability of the envi ronment; products and equipment for wellness and out door leisure activities. OUTEX will therefore be a meeting point for everybody, a glamorous event but also an edu cational opportunity, that will include collective installa tions and ready-to-install solutions that will be presented as art performances by the exhibitors. All this will be ad dressed to those who want to inspire or be inspired and re-design their own water space considering new trends, personal emotions, and - why not? - environmental friend liness. From stone to LED lights, from minimalist pergolas to magnificent, elegant gazebos, this first edition of Out ex will be an ongoing project, presented to the public as a pilot project by ForumPiscine in 2023, a real forge of ide as, and an evolving think tank poised to become an inter national trend-setter.

12TH EDITION OF THE ITALIAN POOL AWARD

In addition to the exciting news that ForumPiscine has in store for the 2023 edi tion, the event will of course also include one of the most anticipated events re garding the Italian Swimming Pool and Spa Show: the Italian Pool Award, which recognises the best made-in-Italy products of the swimming pool universe.

Every year the Italian Pool Award is given to well-designed and well-built pools that stood out for their technology, design, integration with the environment, and focus on water saving or energy efficiency. Designers, companies, accommodation facilities and even private individuals are eligible for the award. The Italian Pool Award has 5 basic categories: Residential outdoor, Residential indoor, Commer cial outdoor, Commercial indoor, and Biopool. In addition, since the first edition of Outex will be held this year, the Jury will award a Special Mention to those candidates that will distinguish themselves for projects where the swimming pool is inserted in its context by creating a harmonious dialogue and a correla tion between water and the surrounding landscape, within which it has been in troduced artificially. In other words, an extra prize will go to the best pool set ting. In addition to this, as always, pictures will be taken of all the pools in the competition for a photographic exhibition that will be displayed during all the three days of ForumPiscine, with free access for all visitors.

ITALIAN POOL AWARD 2022THE RETURN

Last February, in the international setting of ForumPiscine, the professionalism, passion and dedicated work of Italian swimming pool and spa designers and installers was celebrated again during the eleventh edition of the Italian Pool Award. The applauses that animated the awards ceremony reminded us that this sector is more alive than ever, reaping the fruits of the work done even during the harsh times of the pandemic, when the demand of the Italian res idential market remained strong and had no cri sis. So, it was even more pleasant to meet again, after the forced pause in 2021, to celebrate the 5 winners of the competition launched by Pis cine Oggi and watch them receive the famous bronze statuette designed by Osvaldo Casano va and made by the ancient foundry “Fonderia Merighi Arte” of Bologna. This was also an opportunity to take stock of the sector. The candidate pool designs con firmed the taste of consumers and the market trends observed in recent years: a functional de sign, often integrated with high-tech features, but still with a natural and not-too-construct ed beauty, that can be installed with harmo ny in any context, be it the city or the country. Pools are required to be beautiful, comforta ble, well-equipped and environmentally friend ly. Today more than ever, customers want tech nologies and are more aware of best practices that contribute to preserve resources and re duce consumption, without giving up the pleas ure of a dip in the water. With a focus on aes thetics, the pools are mainly characterized by polygonal shapes, with the rectangle remaining the undisputed champion. The scene was dom inated by pool entries, going from wide stairs to

soft sand beaches, elegant steps, and a range of design choices that add a touch of class to the whole basin. In some instances, the pool entry is the main area, enriched with hydromassage hot tubs, refined seating areas and furnishings. Evocative infinity edge pools, PVC and stone cladding, submersible LED spotlights and mod erate-sized solarium areas remain the most pop ular and must-have features. All this was shown to the visitors of the photographic exhibition dedicated to the 45 candidates of the Italian Pool Award, which put the Italian pool market on stage during the 3 days of ForumPiscine with a representative collection of the production of the sector.

Do you want to know the winners? Let’s plunge together into the exploration of the swimming pools awarded by the jury of the eleventh edi tion of the Italian Pool Award.

FITT B-Active Flex is the flexible PVC spiral hose even more resistant to mechanical stresses thanks to the EVO TECH innovation. The EVO TECH innovation further strengthens the film covering the rigid spiral (Spiral Protection Barrier technology) and makes the hose 6 times more resistant to cracking than other hoses - according to EN ISO 3994. The hose is then protected whilst preserving its high flexibili ty and narrow bending radius characteristics. FITT B-Ac tive Flex with inner anti-chlorine protective film (Chlorine Defence System patent), and rigid anti-crushing PVC spi ral reinforcement (D-Shape patent) is ideal for embedded pools and SPAs. ↑

FITT B-Active Rigid has been manufactured by using the Shock Wave technology, which ensures its shock-resist ance even at low temperatures (down to -10 °C). It is made of PVC-A and has a 3-layer structure that makes it corro sion-proof and resistant to soil pollutants. This facilitates its installation and reduces the accidental damages that may be caused by transportation or handling in the building site. To create a safe hydraulic circuit, FITT B-Active Rigid can be connected to FITT B-Active Flex. ↑

According to the FITT vision, being a sustainable com pany means being in business to create financial, envi ronmental and social value. It’s a condition that requires work, time and the pursuit of continuous improvement. In terms of production, FITT’s responsibility journey goes through four fundamental actions: measure, know, im prove and compensate.

To improve its impact on the environment, FITT must first measure and understand it.

For this reason, for its leading products it carries out anal yses of their life cycles in partnership with Centro Studi Qualità e Ambiente (Centre for Quality and Environmen tal Studies) – CESQA – of the Industrial Engineering De partment of the University of Padua . The Life Cycle As

sessment (LCA) is an empirical tool based on the collection and analysis of data that enables the scientific mapping of impacts, the identification of areas for improvement and transparent communication to all stakeholders.

FITT B-Active Flex has also been, first in its field of applica tion, subjected to an LCA in accordance with internation al standards ISO 14040 and ISO 14044, to analyse the im pacts associated with the life cycle of the product itself and to compare the different technological alternatives availa ble on the market.

The LCA is the method that FITT uses to understand which raw materials and processes are most critical, ascertain the footprint of its products and monitor itself over time, trig gering a virtuous circle of continuous improvement.

Preformati Italia® has been producing customized pools and Spas for over 15 years. The company was born out of the desire to pursue innovation through solid skills ap plied to the world of water and wellness. Any Preformati Italia’s project starts with an idea that, being carefully ex amined, is engineered by the technical dept. Then the pro

ject moves on to production where it takes shape and is assembled. High precision machines help operators in the first cutting and assembling steps. Once finished with reinforcing waterproof solutions, all el ements move to the construction site where they are as sembled and completed.

KLIMAPOOL

The last product by Preformati Italia’s R&D is called Kli mapool, the new energy concept that encompasses all the company’s guidelines for an exclusive, lightweight, custom ized, energy-efficient pool that is also environment-friend ly. Klimapool exploits insulation properties of raw materi al, i.e. a high-quality polymer compound which is matched to reinforcing and waterproof solutions. All pool elements produced with this technology have a higher energy per formance than the traditional prevailing technologies used so far. Klimapool guarantees maximum architectural cus tomization. Moreover, these pools are so lightweight that they can be installed in particularly difficult locations, e.g. terraces, upper floors and on roof tops. Most work is done by Preformati Italia during production. Working in con struction sites can be overlapped with the one inside the company to reduce assembling times and costs. Klimapool pools are delivered with an energy performance certificate (the first of its kind in Italy), as demonstration of quality and energy results achieved by the structure. The motto of this concept is: “The first energy saved is the energy not con sumed”. ←

All Preformati Italia’s solutions can be used also for rede velopment of existing pools with no need of demolition works. For example, the renovation of the swimming pool “Torrazza”, carried out in collaboration with Pettene Archi tect Studio, involved Preformati Italia for energy efficiency aspects of the old-fashioned structure and its equipments.
